Following on from the First Foresters resource on the Neolithic in Scotland, I’ve also contributed to Into the Wildwoods, a new booklet on the Mesolithic of Scotland. I helped research and write characters for the book, working with the illustrator Alex Leonard who brought them to life.
It has a great map-making activity that explores how people may have moved around in the Mesolithic and how they could live in different habitats such as island birchwood and estuary broad-leaf woodland, and find what they needed to live in each area.
You can also download supplementary Storyline activities to help plan activities using the booklet with classes.
It is free to download as a PDF, or you can send send stamps to the value of £3.55 (small parcel first class) and your address to:
